For posh pizzas in Mayfair, you can’t go past this little gem on Mount Street. Set in a grand Victorian building, Delfinos is a buzzy pizzeria that is ideal for pasta with a side order of people watching, and with its convenient proximity to Buckingham Palace and Green Park the place is always filled with an eclectic crowd of local office workers, tourists and mid-shopping-expedition yummy mummies. The kitchen at Delfinos offers a variety of pizza, pasta and meat dishes, and favourites include the Piemontese pizza with tomatoes, mozzarella and bresaola; the Fregole Sardinian pasta with clams, radicchio, cherry tomatoes and chilli; and the grilled tuna steak served with dates, celery seeds, honey vinegar and fresh mint.

I've been to Delfino's a million times because I used to have an office a fews doors down the street. When a recent informal business meeting came up with a request to meet in Mayfair, I immediately suggested Delfino's and - as always - the restaurant delivered. Great service with a sense of humour and always reliable food. Thanks, as ever.

Food was superb, staff was very nice and friendly but service was a little on the slow sode had to wait ages for our pizza, which was cut in half cuz we shared but we didnt ask for it to be cut in half. Pizza was absolutely worth the wait, Best in London!

I know it’s Mayfair but £4.10 for a tiny bottle of coke is ridiculous. The pizza was ok ..would I go back ? Probably not.

Loved the fact that waitress could talk us through gluten free menu. That was outstanding.
Only negative to whole experience was that staff disappeared after serving so getting more service took time!
Great food though.

In the heart of Mayfair, a unique authentic Italian! All the flair, frenzy and flavours that you would expect from a Fiorenzi family find. Menu packed with all the favourites and top wine with a very non Mayfair low mark up. It if it’s not the food that will keep you entertained and coming back for more, the people watching sure will. Love!!!!

Slight disappointment with the service, none of the staff poured our wine for us, we had to keep on helping ourselves even though they were not super busy and kept on walking past.

Food is always good here, standard down-the-middle Italian far including great pizza and pasta dishes. Good value, too, especially given location (Mayfair) and high quality of food at reasonable prices. Friendly staff. Service was a bit sporadic during this visit - several requests (e.g. more water, etc) that were not actioned, and obviously forgotten - out of character with Delfino's, but certainly server-specific. Will watch this more closely next visit.

Tables are ridiculously close together which not only makes it hard to have a private conversation but it is even difficult just to get past (there is one table which is right in front of the door so to go in and out of the restaurant you need to ask people sitting at the table to get up!!).
Pizza is ok but I have tried much better in London at much better prices... wine very expensive!! Desserts were not good quality, as if taken from frozen and just heated.
With regards to service it was ok but they brought me a pizza that was lacking all the ingredients and when I asked they said it had everything. I had to complain and then they admitted it and brought me a new one (in the meantime my friend was eating on her own).
Not a great experience, wouldn’t go back and wouldn’t recommend...

Extensive menu, good quick service, tasty food. The only downsides were the tables were very close together which made it impossible to get up from your seat without the diners at the next table also getting up and moving their table. An additional item which we did not order or receive also got added to our bill but this was quickly removed after we pointed it out. Both relatively minor points, would definitely recommend for good Italian food and reasonably priced, especially for the Mayfair area.
